Health Law is now a complicated, heterogeneous domain of law. Practicing Health Law may call for special skills in corporate law, bioethics, family law, Internet and technology law, and tort law, as well as in other areas of law.

The Health Law concentration program thus recognizes that to prepare students for the careers in Health Law, they must have significant flexibility to design programs of study that allow them to take advantage of the Law School's broad curriculum while offering the opportunity for greater specialization.

Accordingly, students may select between a general Concentration in Health Law and more specialized programs of study in Health Law and Bioethics and Health Law: Institutional Structures and Financing.... [-]

The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University prepares passionate students to have an impact in the legal community and beyond.

Since 1970, Hofstra Law has provided an education rich in both the theory and skills needed to produce outstanding lawyers, business executives, and community leaders.

Located on the 240-acre campus of Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, Hofstra Law is 20 miles outside New York City in suburban Long Island. Few, if any, law schools can match the combination of our green campus and easy access to New York City, the hub of the nation's legal profession.

Hofstra Law is widely recognized as a pioneer in fully integrating clinical education into a traditional law school curriculum. By the late 1970s, the school had one of the largest clinical programs in the nation. Over the years, our clinics have become well known in legal circles in the metropolitan area. As students represent individuals facing real legal challenges, they gain valuable hands-on experience: they advocate in court, counsel clients, conduct fact investigations, and mediate disputes....

Hamad Bin Khalifa University’s Juris Doctor (JD) program delivers a unique model of graduate legal education to meet the needs of Qatar and the region.

The JD is the first-of-its-kind graduate law degree in the MENA region and has been created through a strategic partnership with Northwestern University School of Law. It is the standard first professional graduate law degree in the U.S. as well as an increasing number of other countries. A JD differs from an undergraduate law degree in that it targets individuals who already hold an undergraduate degree, which can be in any subject (including law). The JD is comparable with the best of those offered internationally and equips its graduates with a high level of legal knowledge and the skills that go with such knowledge, thereby enabling them to make the most of a wide range of career options in the public sector, multinational institutions, and in academia. Program Focus An in-depth look at the conceptual theory of law: why are laws made and how have the different legal systems around the law developed? How do different systems differ and where are the similarities? Students will be given a comprehensive education in the function of law, whether in Qatar, the region or internationally. There will be considerable focus on the application of the law, ensuring that practical skills are developed, in addition to a theoretical understanding of legal issues and concepts. Curriculum General courses focusing on the foundational principles needed to successfully practice law in the... [-]
